This was the worst surgery yet. I am beginning to regret even having these stents changed out. I mean I was hurting before, but now I can barely walk (and when I do I look like a hunchback all slouched over and walk at a snail's pace). It feels like the darn stent is trying to poke through my groin (Ow). My left kidney hurts worse than before he changed them and I am having terrible lower back and hip/pelvic pain. Some of it is probably from the spinal anesthesia. Oh, yeah, and speaking of the spinal, My urologist mentions *after* the spinal anesthesia is administered, while I am on the operating table, on my 4th surgery this pregnancy, and the 11th surgery of this kind since 2001, that we might be able to do this under MAC (Monitored Anesthesia Care), which apparently would make my recovery time a lot shorter. Thanks! A little too late for that. Maybe the next surgery (I know I'll have at least one more and hopefully no more that 2 before the baby comes).
Oh, yeah and the creepy urologist was having a discussion with the other staff in the surgical room about what songs are good to "you know" to (that's how he put it). "Foreplay" was specifically mentioned. All with me laying there, wide awake, legs up in stirrups while he does the procedure (awkward much??). It is a wonder he has not been hit with a sexual harassment case... yikes!! :-O Seriously?!? I couldn't believe it. And, sadly, I am stuck with this guy. Valdosta has only three (THREE!) urologists. The first guy that I already switched from because he considered me a liability and a "urologist's nightmare" and was scared to do much to help me since I am pregnant (and is now offended that I "fired" him and won't give me the time of day). My doc. And a third guy who "declines" to see me (for liability reasons I am sure). Docs are so concerned about covering their behinds nowadays that they won't even help people anymore.
